Yochai Gal rated it it was amazing Feb 12, The third aporia is that of the ‘subject’. The revenge of history: There are three logical aporias Callinicos identifies in poststructuralism.

Agency, structure, and change in social theory A Callinicos Brill In Deleuze, the concept of power becomes mystified in his vitalist philosophy outlined in A Thousand Plateaus. There’s also callinicos great, even-handed take on Habermas that’s worth checking out. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Finally, we come back to the strongly supported notion that postmodernism represented a political retreat by much of the Left. This relativist framework structures much of the ‘new sociology of knowledge’, ‘alternative epistemologies’ and anti-realist conceptions of the relationship between posmpdernismo knowledge of indigenous peoples and scientific knowledge.

Marxism and the East European revolutions A Callinicos. Three themes are embraced in this claim; the poststructurist critique by Foucault, Derrida and others of the philosophical heritage of the Enlightenment; the supposed impasse of High Modern art and its replacement by new artistic forms; and the alleged emergence of ‘post-industrial’ societies whose structures are beyond the ken of Marx and other theorists of industrial capitalism.

Best critique of post-modernism around. No trivia or quizzes yet. The origins of this theory are located in the philosophy of Nietzsche, specifically the ‘fiction’ of the subject, the plural nature of the self and the idea of ‘will to power’, and how thought is simply expressive of this power.


I’m not a huge fan of post-modernism, but Callinicos’ criticisms come off as if he hasn’t really read any of the main theorists he critiques.

The argument is presented in a series of rather disconnected essays. Is there a future for Marxism? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Novos artigos desse autor. Anti-capitalist manifesto A Callinicos Polity Takes the theory posmodegnismo at its level and breaks it down.

It is not an extreme idealist ontology or a retreat to a magical variant of phenomenology. The twin crises of the liberal world A Callinicos Polity This switches in Chapter 2 callinicos an understanding of modernist art and commodification. But what bothers Callinicos is apparently cqllinicos second and third steps which seek to create zones of resistance and transformation in symbolic and cultural practices as well, and I see nothing wrong there, since as Marx underlines it well, symbolic and cultural practices are in an organic and reciprocal relation with the factual reality of forces of production.

It seems it is simply untrue that there is only ‘discourse’ as means of communication that has no reference to reality.

Firstly the concept of ‘modern’ is explained as the sweeping up of traditional societies by various events: Against the third way: Not a quick read but great.

Cambridge Review of International Affairs 20 4, Imperialism and global political economy A Callinicos Polity Universities in a neoliberal world A Posmodetnismo Bookmarks Publications This theme is repeated in the so-called feminist ‘new materialism’, specifically Rosi Braidotti’s concept of “zoe” life-force which she derives from Callinnicos inspiration.


The third shift that is criticised is the so-called move from ‘Fordism’ to ‘post-Fordism’ with post-Fordism being rejected as an intelligible category as well as Lash and Urry’s exegesis of the move to a ‘disorganised’ capitalism structured around mobility and the disaggregation of national and ethnic orders.

Callinicos’ objective is to back this up with evidence. Callinicos elsewhere has argued that postmodern theories served as a vehicle for the Left intelligentsia to air out their political disillusionment and newfound love for a particular kind of consumption practice Callinicos calls it an “overconsumptionist dynamic”, see p.
